EDANA and INDA, the two global nonwovens associations, today announced they will partner to co-organise a new edition of EDANA’s OUTLOOK™ conference programme for Latin America in early 2015.

24 April, 2013, Brussels, Belgium and Cary, North Carolina, USA – The two global nonwovens associations, EDANA and INDA, today announced they will partner to co-organise a new edition of EDANA’s OUTLOOK™ conference programme for Latin America sometime in early 2015. 

OUTLOOK Latin America is being organised as part of EDANA’s Outreach programme which has been designed to provide high-quality information, conferences and networking events to the global nonwovens and related industries, particularly outside Western Europe. OUTLOOK™ Latin America will build on the decade-long success of the OUTLOOK™ conferences, including the recent expansion into Asia with OUTLOOK™ Asia held in Singapore in March 2013. 

“With the International Monetary Fund’s positive outlook on the Latin America region, we are confident that the nonwovens industry there will welcome the opportunity to showcase its investment and capabilities.” said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA. “Both INDA, our partner Association in North America, and EDANA, are focused on supporting our member companies as well as local businesses to improve the business and regulatory environment, and to diversify exports.”

“We are delighted to partner with EDANA to reach beyond traditional Western markets and conduct a meaningful event in the southern half of our hemisphere.  Latin American producers of nonwovens for the Personal Care market represent an important element of INDA’s base.  By partnering with EDANA, it enables us to both market the event to our bases which will highlight the importance that both associations attach to this growing and dynamic market,” says Dave Rousse, INDA President.

The OUTLOOK™ conference series is directly aimed at the producers and converters of nonwoven materials and their related industries for personal care products and wipes.  With 11 editions in Europe and its first edition in Asia Pacific, the series has attracted more than 4,000 participants from across the globe.
